Trying to figure out where to go on my next diving trip. Heard great things about both hard to make a decision
1. Know someone been to both and said Indonesia (specifically Wakatobi Resort) was better diving than Maldives. However no big fish like sharks and mantas. Said Maldives current was too rough. Not for beginners (which im not but mt daughter is)
2. Would like to dive with whale sharks, manta's etc.
3. 14 yr daughter would prob come. Concerned about strong drift. However videos i see on you tube are all calm? Not strong drifts needing reef hook like i've read.
4. Was planning to do maybe 5 days on land resort and 5 days on liveaboard. But i may just do only liveaboard. Depending on total costs.
Anyone been to both and can make aome suggestions. I plan tk cross post in indonesia forum
